NYC INDEPENDENT WRESTLING STAR MATT TRAVIS PASSES AWAY

By Mike Johnson on 2019-11-09 19:21:00

New York City independent wrestler Matt Travis, a regular with the House of Glory and GCW promotions, passed away earlier today after a traffic accident, I am extremely sad to report.

The Amazing Red, who trained Travis, tweeted the following:

The early word making the rounds is that Travis' bike was struck by a truck. 

I will have more on this as soon as I can, but I can attest that Travis was a great young talent who was equally a great person and was very much loved and respected by everyone who worked with him.    He had a great feud with Ken Broadway in the promotion, a feud that legitimized each of them in front of the NYC audience over the last several years.   I cannot overstate how much this turn of events has broken the hearts of everyone in the New York City independent wrestling scene.

AEW stars Santana and Ortiz dedicated their match tonight to Travis' memory:

Our deepest condolences to Matt Travis' friends and family.

Below are several of Travis' promos and matches from HOG:

 

A number of independent wrestling personalities took to social media to pay tribute to Travis:
